Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe August 31, 2008

I used to work on the 25th floor (about halfway up) in the '70s..I'll never forget when we had a bomb threat (the FBI was just above us and this was during the Vietnam War) and they made us walk down. You never realize the muscles you don't use much until you have to walk down that many stairs. None of us could hardly walk the next day we were so sore. They also filmed a few movies with scenes in the building.(Dirty Harry and The Towering Inferno) so we got to see a movie star now and then. We had a great view, too. Interesting time and place to work. #6392254

I rather think that if you found "elements of design" in the encyclopedia, this would be the illustrative photo they'd have to use. #6402698

To my photo friends:
On August 23, 2013 I will be 75 years old and I have decided to celebrate my birthday with all of you by going to the “Better Photo Gallery” and enjoy going through all the categories for the month of June and Congratulate you for the beautiful and elegant photographs that has made you a winner in a special group artists. I have had the honor and the privilege of doing this almost every month since 2003 and hope that I can continue for many more years.
My best to all of you, Merna Nobile
